The names of the four people found shot to death outside a Northridge home early Sunday were released Thursday by authorities.

Los Angeles County coroner's officials identified the victims as Amanda Ghossein, 24, of Monterey Park; Jennifer Kim, 26, of Montebello; Robert Calabia, 34, of Los Angeles; and Teofilo Navales, 49, of Castaic.
